As the basis for selectively breeding rats from the N:NIH stock on the basis of differential development of tolerance to ethanol, chronic tolerance to the motor-disrupting effects of ethanol was examined and a negative correlation was found between BEC at RARR prior to chronic ethanol treatment and the amount of chronic tolerance developed.
Effect of the adrenocorticostatic agent, metopirone, on thermoregulatory heat production in the European hedgehog
The results suggest the participation of corticosteroid in the control of NST in the hedgehog may be explained by competitive inhibition of glucocorticoid receptors since there is also an increased production of other 11-deoxycorticosteroids.
Changes in plasma cortisol during acute cold exposure in euthermic European hedgehogs: thermoregulatory role of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis
A highly reactive hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis in euthermic hedgehogs exposed to a cold environment is indicated and it is suggested that a combined action of corticosteroids and catecholamines is involved in the control of regulatory heat production.

Adrenocortical and thermoregulatory responses to cold and metopirone in the Cretan spiny mouse
Cortisol production of isolated adrenal cells from the guinea pig acclimated to 22 °C and to 10 °C at different incubation temperatures
Effect of hypercapnia on the central nervous thermoregulatory system in hibernators
Comparison of Cortisol Production by Isolated Adrenal Cells from Syrian Hamsters and Guinea-Pigs at Different Incubation Temperatures
The question arises if there are interspecies differences in corticosteroidogenesis at low body temperatures between the hibernator and the nonhibernator, and cells from adrenals of both species were isolated and stimulated by adrenocorticotropic hormone.
